Yes, that’s Valentine’s Day on the horizon and it’s heading your way. But, what if you’re not in the mood? Well, you’re not alone. According to research by Everyday Health, approximately 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men have experienced sexual dysfunction, which includes low libido.
Lack of Desire
What is libido? Libido is your conscious or unconscious sex drive, which controls your urge for sexual pleasure. When a person experiences low libido they feel like they’re missing the desire for sex, which can affect relationships, especially around uber-romantic Valentine’s Day.
A waning libido can be tricky to treat because it can be caused by a range of factors – from stress, medications, poor body image, depression, and low testosterone levels, just to mention a few.
We recommend seeing your physician if you have a health issue that concerns you. However, our team here at Intimate Wellness Shop has put together a curated list of products that may help put you in the mood as Valentine’s Day approaches.
Aphrodisiac’s and Mood Boosters
Aphrodisiacs have a long history of folk medicines used in different cultures. Most aphrodisiacs fall into three categories that increase libido, potency, or sexual pleasure. From “Spanish fly” to ingesting live beetles in Southeast Asia, centuries upon centuries of people have searched for a way to remedy their lack of sexual desire.
We understand your hope to be filled with Valentine’s lust, without snacking on beetles, so we’ve chosen a tastier option that can help get you in the mood for romance and more.

Pheromones are Chemical Communication
In 1959 Peter Karlson, a German biochemist, and Martin Lüscher, a Swiss entomologist coined the term "pheromone". They developed the term from the Greek, pherein meaning "to carry" and hormon meaning "to excite"— making pheromones "carriers of excitement”.
So, what exactly are pheromones? Pheromones are chemicals released that can affect the physiology or behavior of others. Research has found that pheromones can have a positive effect on sexual responses.
